Have stopped going to this local Thai restaurant. Began as authentic, tasty food but did not keep up with quality as time went on. I think it is under new management and may give it another try in the future.

We had lunch at Das Kitchen in Hopewell, a small town in central NJ. Started with an appetizer we had never heard of, Meang Kana, consisting of broccoli leaves that you brush with Da’s homemade coconut paste then fill with ginger, lime, shallots, chillies and peanut chunks. Delicious. The main meals were equally tasty, and the service was perfect; not... More

We went here almost exactly a year before and it was very good. The food has declined a lot since then. I would say it is now below average Thai food for almost twice the usual price. Service is friendly but inexperienced and a little inept. Scratch it off the list. I heard later that it is not under the... More

We had a wonderful meal at Da's Kitchen with out-of-town friends recently. We both love Thai food and travel widely and noted that the dishes we enjoyed at Da's were the most inventive, tasty and freshest Thai dishes in our collective recent memories! Our friends begged Clark to open an outpost in Arizona!

Had dinner there and found it to be a very disappointing and an expensive letdown. We love Thai food and really spent good money for subpar dinners. The duck was so over dry it was not palatable. The service was very slow due to not having it properly staffed. The place was loaded with flies. We will not return.

Clark R, Owner at Da's Kitchen, responded to this review

We are very sorry for your disappointing meal. The flies are not a typical issue in our restaurant, we are aware specifically of the night you have mentioned. The staff had both of our doors open to make it easier for them to go in and out of the restaurant to service the outside tables. As you can imagine it... More

The original chef left Da's Kitchen and there was a significant change in the Thai cuisine. Previously we gave Da's five stars. The soups and appetizers were very good; but, the quality and preparation of the main entrees went down, It is still a decent Thai restaurant; but, there are better ones in Montgomery Twp and Hillsborough Twp. Sorry guys;... More

Food is very good, and the often have a Living Social deal for approximately half price, which makes it a great value. Service is not great. They forget to bring wine bottle openers, you sit with an empty drink for 10+ minutes, and you ask for change and get the same bill back that you handed them. The food makes... More
